Outdoor dining and footpath structures guidelines

Our guidelines for outdoor dining and footpath structures detail requirements for placement of light weight structures such as tables, chairs, planter boxes and shade structures, on public verges.  

We are working with the ACT Government and local businesses to support outdoor dining in shopping areas and commercial zones and also ensure protection of water and sewerage assets. 

These principles apply to commercial areas and not public verges in residential areas.
